Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
I’m not normally this hyped about writing a book review. Right now my emotions are all up in the air; and I can barely compose myself to get the words out……..okay, okay so maybe I’m always like this. Anyway, I am particularly excited about Hex Hall. The entire time I was reading this I was thinking, this reminds me of Sabrina the teenage witch, then I was like "this reminds me of Evernight", then Harry Potter, and then I was like "OMG, I don't care this is GREAT". It’s like a play on all my favorite stories with such an original spin.
